IT IS OUTSIDE THE LAW...IS IT?

Ye Gods! If we are thrown into the jaws of our regional news producers I dread to think how the presenting standards,(leave aside item selections)will evolve.

Last Night we heard about a guy who was shot dead while sitting in his car in a shopping store car park. Background information told us that this guy had been lucky to survive a similar shooting once before.

Okay, so far so good.

We then hear that this character has a history of kidnapping, serious assaults and connections with drug dealing.

The reporter continues: "This crime is a serious one, and is outside the law".

Pardon?

They don't seem to know what they're saying much of the time! Flighty xx

Hi MKL,

Glad the updating is okay at your end.

The broadcasters are not only language idiots, they employ verbal idiots after their own linguistic inadequacies.

Hello Mr F.

Happy New year to you!

I agree with you, the reporting had pre-requisites for an exposé in hot air and bluster.

As if to say, "So if any of you guys out there think it's a cool thing to do, executing your evil rivals, think again! Unless you want to be outside the law, which is kind of cool, I grant you, but hey! You might just get caught, which is less cool."

Er...how do I respond to this Vincent! I am grinning as I read what you say.

This is a brilliant bit of lateral thinking,but hey guys, just how cool can you get?
